Calendar Sync with Google / Screen Protector

Test drove yesterday 7DEC11 a Ti (sans handling package). Salesman did his spiel about all the features he could present. Stumped him several times.
"It's too new." "I'm doing my best, but I don't have all the answers." While I appreciated his candor, it would have been nice if he had offered to note the questions, look into them, and get back to me with answers; that would drive me back to him for a purchase.

Can anyone answer this: Can the onboard calendar sync with a Google calendar, thru one's smartphone or otherwise?

Is there a screen protector for the touch screen? I protect my iphone's screen, and can imagine how pricey it must be to replace a scratched touchscreen. Zagg does not make one.

Thanks, -Biggs

at this time the calendar can't be synced with anything. so it's nothing more than something to look and see what day it is...(right now).

Thank you. Maybe in the near future a firmware upgrade will make this possible. And create MiFi (Mobile WiFi) hotspots.

MiFi is the name of an actual mobile hotspot made by Novatel, not a general shorthand for mobile hotspots. Our car already has that capability with a USB broadband adapter.

Thanks, -Biggs
I ordered one from NuShield after folks here posted about it in another thread. I just received an email from them today so if folks want 10% off better do so before the end of the year!

"You will receive 10% OFF your order by writing NHDC11 into the Customer Discount box on the NuShield cart page when placing your order. Without inserting this, you will not receive the discount and NuShield will not be able to credit the discount to you retroactively. This promotion ends December 31, 2011 so don't miss out on the bargains!"

I just ordered one. Thanks for turning us on to this. 10% off saved part of the shipping cost.

Thanks for giving him a rep-point, I've done that for helpers myself, not many do.
